Overseas Manager Exchanges
The LG Professionals, NSW Overseas Manager Exchange Programme provides leadership and professional development opportunities specifically tailored to the local government environment. The programme provides members with an opportunity to focus on their management development and career in local government through a short exchange with a partner manager in another country.
Many members have benefited from the programme and through this professional, personal and cultural experience, most have gone back to their council inspired and armed with a better perspective and increased knowledge of local government. Many exchange recipients are surprised how similar the challenges faced by their overseas colleagues are to their own.
Exchanges are currently offered to:
- New Zealand
- The United States of America
Each exchange involves a hosted visit to the destination country and the hosting of a reciprocal visitor from that country during the time period of the LG Professionals, NSW Local Government Conference generally held in June.
